Autumn Educational Enrichment Program
As a non-profit, children’s program that is passionate about teaching and reaching kids and as a response to two requests from parents…we are going to give it a try this Fall 2020. Our new Autumn Educational Enrichment Program (AEEP) will be taught by an Oregon State Certified Teacher and will be held at our beautiful, Farm Program facility in Corbett. We will learn academics as well as focus on the social and emotional wellbeing of these students. This is new, but we opened to teach and serve students in 1996.
Enrollment begins now and we start September 15! We will be enrolling eight (8) students’ maximum that are going into 1st-3rd only for each Tuesday and Thursday until November 19th. We will accept six students at full rate and will scholarship two students in need at half off. We will be on a month by month basis. The cost is $349/month and $69/month for our bus. We will offer our own Old McDonald’s Farm, Inc. bus to pick up and drop off students at the Mall 205 area. If you are interested, contact us right away. Eight children maximum and five students minimum required to run this program. Please let others know.
We will adhere to all of the current Covid 19 restrictions. Much more information on that will be forthcoming.
